Ayurveda is a life science which explains about the different dosage forms, which is the physical form of a medication intended for
administration. The different dosage forms can be prepared by the physician according to his Yukti, considering samyoga, vishesha,
kala and samskara. There are different dosage forms which have been explained in books. These have been classified into different
types such as Aushadhakalpana, Aaharakalpana, Bahyaand Abhyantarakalpana, solid, liquid and semisolid forms, as well as of plant,
animal and mineral origin. These dosage forms are mainly intended to increase shelf life, palatability and to alter potency. These can
be used both internally and externally. Few of the dosage forms have been explained mainly based on the physical state of the
medicine and its uses and advantages.
